Outside body

Local Government Association (LGA) General Assembly


The General Assembly - the 'Parliament of Local Government' - meets once a year and is the only LGA decision-making forum which all authorities in membership are eligible to attend and to vote.


The General Assembly elects the political leadership of the LGA, receives the annual report and accounts and may debate motions on issues of national significance to local government. It is a key element of the LGA's governance arrangements.


Member authorities appoint representatives to serve on the LGA General Assembly for the period of one year. The number of Members an authority can nominate is the same as the number of votes the authority is allocated - Cherwell District Council has one vote.
